The Consulate General of Canada and the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), a regional grouping designed to promote cooperation in education, science and culture, will jointly hold the third Canadian Secondary School Forum 2006 in Ho Chi Minh City.

The forum will be attended by 16 international schools and preparatory schools from Canada who will introduce their educational systems, overseas study programs as well as career consultants to interested students and parents.

The forum will be staged at the Legend Hotel (2A - 4A Ton Duc Thang St., Dist.1) on Tuesday, March 14 from 4PM to 8PM.

According to a representative of the Canadian Education Center Network (CECN), some Canadian cities including Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto are ranked among the world’s top ten cities for best living conditions, thus Canada is believed to be a favorable destination for overseas study.

Students of these 16 schools can particularly choose either English or French as their learning language.

Over 290 universities, university colleges, community colleges, technical institutes, vocational colleges, secondary schools, language schools and summer camps across Canada are clients of the CECN.
